Jian Lake Blue Bay Golf Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2012

Jian Lake Blue Bay Golf Club, home to a highly-rated open parkland layout, is located in the south of Hainan Island, with holes looking out onto Lingshui Bay. Large sandy waste areas, an (over?) abundance of stylish bunkering and threatening lakes all play their part in this challenging Mark Hollinger design.

This well-crafted out-and-back layout shifts inland and onto the other side of a busy road for the middle section of the course. On this north side of the layout, from the long par-3 4th through to the even longer par-3 13th, there's plenty of water in play. Housing and apartment blocks are also much in evidence beyond the course.

Crossing back to the south side of the layout, the double-doglegging par-5 14th leads a three-hole journey down to the shoreline of Lingshui Bay. Here the yet still longer par-3 17th is played directly beside the beach.

Stay & Play at the Blue Bay resort: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
